Novation LaunchKey 25 MK3

Maximum expression with velocity-sensitive keys and pads

Translate emotion into sound with the highly expressive keybed. The velocity-sensitive keys react to the force of your touch. For example, striking the key hard will result in a more brash and in-your-face sound; subtly pressing the key will result in a softer tone ideal for adding nuances to your performance.

The onboard performance pads have been upgraded from the MK2, with a larger and more expressive design. The pads also react to the force of your touch, resulting in more dynamic performances. The backlit pads are perfect for finger-drumming, triggering samples, creating melodies and much more.

New ways to create melodies and chords

The Launchkey MK3 employs multiple new ways to interact with sounds and new ways to create melodies. The new three chord modes allow you to trigger chords from hitting a single note. This is highly useful not only when creating music but also for live performances. The three chord modes are comprised of fixed, scale and user, with the latter allowing you to dictate your own chord patterns.

The new scale modes also allow you to transpose both the keybed and pads to trigger notes in a selected scale. This is ideal for creating melodies, allowing you to hit any key and create something coherent and in key. The versatile arpeggiator allows you to create rhythmic melodic pieces with ease.

In-depth integration with encoders and transport controls

In addition to expressive keybed and pads, the Launchkey MK3 employs a range of transport controls and encoders for maximum control of your music software and virtual instruments. The encoders are perfect for controlling automation and tweaking parameters within instruments and effects. The deep integration with Ableton takes the transport controls to the next level, minimising the need to switch computer and controller.

Complete with jam-packed music software bundle

Get started straight out of the box with the included powerful music software. First and foremost, Launchkey MK3 comes complete with Ableton Live Lite which is a powerful DAW which allows you to start producing and making music. Serato Sample LE is also included, allowing you to slice, re-arranged and manipulate samples in real-time. Serato Sample LE also includes the legendary Pitch ‘n’ Time timestretching and pitchshifting algorithm for maximum audio quality when slicing samples.

A FREE two-month subscription to Splice Sounds allows you to explore millions of premium-grade, royalty-free loops, samples and presets. New sounds and releases are made live daily allowing you to explore new vibes every day.

Completing the software bundle is a wide range of powerful virtual instruments and effects. Included are: Spitfire Audio LABS – Expressive Strings, XLN Addictive Keys, Klevgrand R0Verb and DAW Cassette and AAS Session Bundle. You also gain access to the Sound Collective – an exclusive service for Novation hardware owners, providing you a new free plug-in every couple of months.
